For the 7 to 12 year olds (7-9 yrs old / 10-12 yrs old)
You like to do arts & craft, to invent stories and act too ? You want to know the secrets of the great puppet master of the world? This camp is for you!
Puppet Camp offers you the opportunity to discover the fascinating world of the puppetry. The camp is a unique opportunity where the campers will have a chance to produce their own original puppet show including making the set, writing the story, making the puppets, and performing their creation. This specialized one-week program will captivate the curious and creative child who enjoys hands activities. Puppetry is also the opportunity for shy campers to open up and express themselves behind the castelet. Campers attending this program will have first-hand experience with a variety of puppets, ranging from hand puppets to full body puppets and silhouettes.
Through various workshops, we will create colorfull characters, discover the various materials of manufacturing that come into the craft of puppetry and learn to manipulate them to breathe life into our story. We will try to integrate, as much as possible, recycled materials (cardboard box, milk cans, plastic containers, ect…) to create original puppets. A good part of the week will be dedicated to puppet manipulation. We will also discover the technical specificities of the various types of puppets that we are experimenting with at camp. We will take the week to elaborate our stories, make the set and decorations, make the puppets, and to rehearse our play. This great camp will end with an end-of-camp presentation in front of parents and friends on the last Friday of the camp.
